I am in SE Nebraska, zone 5b. This is my first time growing spring crops and I'm getting a little discouraged by how slow everything is growing. I'm asking if what I'm experiencing is normal or if I'm doing something wrong.
I have sown:
Daikon radish - March 8th
Kale - March 24th
Mesclun lettuce - ''
Sugar snap pea - ''
A few (20%) of my radishes have two true leaves, the rest are sprouts yet.
The lettuce is about an inch tall and just starting to form true leaves; the kale is a little behind.
The peas look okay. Anywhere from 2-4 inches tall.
Average high temp this month is 67, with a really warm spell between the 2nd and the 6th. Soil temp is low 50s, currently.
Hi Joe, glad to see you joined us. My plants seem to be right on par with yours. Our onions and potatoes are slower this year. I think the ground just isn't quite warm enough yet. The garlic is loving it.
The best place to pray for a good crop is at the end of a hoe!
